Announcement    At Pretty Flamingo you will find all the things I make, from jewellery to knitted bags and accessories to felt flowers and animals, and, of course, my paintings.

I get bored easily and rarely make the same thing twice, so you are assured of receiving an original item - even the knitted and felt pets will be in different colours, yarns, and have their own personal accessories and characters.

I am inspired by nature and love to try and replicate it's beauty in my work. I am also fascinated by making things as realistic as possible - my little pets will have a lot of highly detailed features, and my felt flowers will be inspired by real plants.

I am always willing to take on a commission if I can - don't be frightened to contact me!

All items come from a smoke free home.

Etsy have recently pushed for sellers to make their items come with 'Free Postage' for buyers in the USA and allow for this by increasing the price of the item. I will not be introducing this policy to my shop - the price of the item is what you see, and the price of the postage is an average cost of sending the item to you. Sometimes the actual postage is more than what I have charged, sometimes slightly less - hopefully it evens out. But I want my customers to see exactly what they are paying for and I wish to treat them as fairly as I can, no matter which country they reside in. Should any postage be considerably less than what I have charged, I would issue a refund. Hopefully my prices are reasonable and customers will appreciate that I am trying to be as transparent and honest as I can.

Welcome to my shop - hope you enjoy the visit!

Shop policies

Last updated on July 19, 2019
My knitted and felt items have their basis in patterns from books and magazines, but I pride myself in making them as individual as possible with differing yarns, decorations, colours, accessories etc. None are identical - unless you want them to be!
All paintings are original works, based on my own photographs.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 21 days of delivery
I don't accept exchanges or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
I will endeavour to package each item securely to prevent damage. However, accidents happen and should anything arrive damaged in the post, please let me know by e-mail and send it back to be repaired.

I try to make my wares as durable as possible. However,
should any item break, please contact me, I will be more than happy to repair it rather than have an unhappy customer and one of my 'babies' binned! All I would require is return postage.

Payment
I would like payment to be made within 7 days at the latest. I prefer Paypal, but will accept personal cheques here in the U.K.
Shipping
Items will not be sent out until payment is received. I will then send them within 48 hours of receiving payment (probably quicker!)
In the U.K. items will be sent 'signed for' thus insuring the item up to £35. Packages of higher value will be sent registered.

If an item has been specially commissioned or requires modification in any way, you will be informed of the approximate date of sending as well as an e-mail upon despatch.

Please note that items sent to the USA, even when sent 'signed for' are taking up to 18 days. Please allow for this - I do my utmost to send items as soon as they are purchased but cannot be held responsible for the mail service's shortcomings!!
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that any toys I make are not suitable for children under 3 or children that are prone to eating small objects! The description will always state if a toy has small swallowable pieces such as beads for eyes, please use your discretion when buying!

If you would like to commission any item - a copy of a previous piece or something more personalised, please do get in touch. I'm more than happy to discuss your requirements and will try my best to meet them where possible.
Privacy
Let's keep this simple because who needs to waste time reading pages of jargon when all you want are the facts.

The only information I collect from you is what is needed for your order - name, address, payment details & any information required for a custom order. This information will only be used in the fulfillment of your order. This information will not be shared with any third parties other than Etsy and the shipping company used. I keep records of each order but these are for my own personal use and again, no information is shared or passed on to any third party.

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
